Bach Professional C Model C180SL229CC Stradivarius C Trumpet

Stradivarius C Trumpet

In April of 1955, Vincent Bach completed and delivered six C trumpets to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Four were selected by individual members of the trumpet section and purchased by the Orchestra. The remaining two were sold to a music store for individual customers. Now, almost fifty years later, these trumpets are still revered, still in use, and still the property of the Chicago Symphony. Each instrument is assigned to a specific section member. Today, however, other trumpet players are in for a treat, as Conn-Selmer has introduced the 'new' Bach Stradivarius "Chicago" C trumpet, an instrument closely based on these original designs. The model (specifically model C180SL229CC) features a #229 bell and a #25 leadpipe, but this instrument design is faithful to the original blueprints in many other details, as well.

Based on Vincent Bach's 1955 "C" trumpet designs, this new instrument features:

"Stradivarius" - Key of C, .462" large-bore, lightweight one-piece hand-hammered yellow brass #229 bell with classic French bead flat rim with soldered bell wire, special #25 leadpipe based on 1947 design, widefoot bell to leadpipe braces, narrower braces at bell to valve casing and valve casing to leadpipe, thumb ring on first valve, narrow tuning slide....1947 design, single brace on tuning slide, bead rings on all slidew, hexagon shaped pull knobs, genuine Vincent Bach 7C mouthpiece, Special Edition double trumpet case.   Available in silver-plate only
